    I wonder if Elephants suffer from swollen legs too or if that's just a human affliction ?!?

    Inquiring minds may or may not want to know.

    Several references would indicate to me the front foot being modeled as it currently is for our base Eli, as far as the thickness of the leg above the foot (Ankle area). But... I've added in morphs for the front legs and back legs separately to provide more options for folks. Hopefully this will work.

    In a small voice "can we have a broken tusk morph?" I think that would be a cool option

    Hey, Chris, looking good! Does the elephant have a morph for tushes (small tusks like the ones in the reference image you posted, common to female Asian elephants)?

    I have a couple different broken tusk morphs. Believe I showed them earlier, will have to check.

    The shortest tusk morph is the one I posted last night. If folks would still like a smaller one, I can certainly do that.

    Tushes are pretty important to the Asian elephant. Half of Indian Asian elephant females and a significant number of males have tushes, and only about 10% of Sri Lankan males have tusks.

    I have found a few other breathtaking Asian elephants for ideas for textures. One of them I have talked to Sparky about already. It is one I met in real life.

    Awesome. Love it. Love the tusks too.

    My understanding is the fleshy pink colors come into play the other they get, but I could be wrong.

    Actually the dis-pigmentation comes from vitamin deficiency. It is more prevalent in Sri Lankan elephants due to lack of habitat. There are 4 sub species of Asian elephants all broken up by the areas they live in throughout Asia. Main land "Indian" elephants that reside in the northern part of India are the typical cool gray color with little to no pigmentation. The Sri Lankan elephant is the most colorful ranging fro the cool gray to almost black skin with pink to orange pigment patches. Southern Indian elephants are dark gray in coloration with pinkish pigmentation on the belly and on the trunk only. Pygmy elephants will range from cool gray to dark gray and with little to no pigmentation, also they max out a 8ft and some odd inches at shoulder. I Have always loved elephants and have studied them for awhile if you can't tell. :lol:

    Hey, Chris, don't forget to send me the Poser version with all the morphs in it so I can put them in the DS version! ;) Or, the objs would work, too.
